Credits 1.0

First of 2 integrated clinical education courses that are embedded within the first 6 didactic semesters of the DPT curriculum. These courses will focus on clinical practice with students working individually or in pairs with a clinical faculty member (i.e. physical therapist clinical instructor) to apply skills, demonstrate clinical problemsolving and assume professional roles in various patient care settings (based on their level of clinical experience). In this first course, students will be expected to demonstrate skills and knowledge gained from the first 3 semesters of coursework. This course is completed in the classroom (information sessions) and at affiliated clinical facilities during the third semester in Year 1 for a total of 80 clinical hours.
